Hells Angels Ontario Nomads president Paul Porter — dubbed Sasquatch for his height and girth — was led away in handcuffs from companion Debbie Brennan after charges against her were dropped.
Judge Paul Kane said dealing drugs is a serious crime.
"It is a form of cancer that is permeating our society that is destroying the lives of the users, that is destroying the lives of their family members.
"It is all done in the name of greed, for money and profit."
A source told police that a quantity of cocaine was to be delivered to a house and picked up by Porter.
Investigators followed the pair in a 1964 Cadillac Deville to the rural address on Sept 12, 2009.
The couple stayed at the house for four minutes, then drove off in the vintage car. Uniformed Ottawa police officers pulled them over and found nine ounces of cocaine in Brennan's purse.
Porter said the drugs belonged to him, but both were charged. He pleaded guilty as their trial was set to begin.
It was estimated in 2004 that the Nomads controlled more than 80% of Ottawa's drug trade.
